AtD:
Sadhana sees that the pile of wood where Reinhardt's body was burned is no longer there, not even the ashes.

AtD:
As you head to the clearing, you see several sets of unfamiliar footprints around the area where you fought Reinhardt.

Perception checks, please.

AtD:
"You may use the cottage as always," Maera says. "I'll look into the matter of these dark folk as well."


lol, I'm not sure that works.


AtD:
"Malyoxa doesn't like to spend time underground," Maera replies. "But that's really her business to discuss. She had finished searching for reagents for a potion to help her see during the day when she came last night. I was going to make it for her before we were attacked."


I'll soon be joining her, if dinner will stop disagreeing with me :P


AtD:
Sādhanā realizes that for the dark folk to work in a concerted effort, someone else would have to be directing them. Given what she knows about Vencious, it would be unlikely for him to enlist them.


AtD:
"I don't think I could answer that, Arista," the nymph says. "Perhaps it was the refugees or something else that happened recently."


AtD:
"Dark folk have a den in the far northwest," Maera answers. "That is the only place that they have been seen. If they have come this far south, then it isn't by their own doing, I believe. Someone ordered them to come here for some reason."

Con:
Jericho smiles at Cyna. "She's a good kid, just misses her parents and, by that, I mean you. You three sit, I'll go get you some food."


AtD:
The nymph shakes her head. "The peace of this place has been shattered. The other fey fear that another attack may come."


AtD:
After leaving the cave, you find Maera standing along the path to the cabin.


AtD:
"Be assured that we shall redouble our efforts to protect this cave," Allira says, walking with you to the entrance. "Be safe yourselves."


Con:
Gwen smiles and just clings to Cyna.

I've always wanted to run a campaign in a cave like that.


AtD:
Allira stands and turns to the group. "Leaving already?"


AtD:
The group finds Allira praying over an Anizari.


Con:
Gwen looks from Sienna to Cyna, her voice dropping low. "A ydych yn gadael eto cyn bo hir?"

Elven:
"Are you leaving again soon?"


Con:
Gwen's eyes widen in surprise. "Rydych yn siarad fy iaith nawr?"

Elven:
"You know my language now?"


Con:
Cyna and Sienna find Gwen at the inn sitting with Jericho, who is trying to teach her Common. The young drow looks up and smiles. "Fam Cyna! Fam Sienna!"

She gets up and rushes to the ranger and sorceress and embraces them tightly. "Rydw i wedi colli chi."

Elven:
"I've missed you."


After your break, you press on and make to camp well after nightfall. Micah gets a few of his men to take the crates from your sled after you make it into the glade. He thanks you profusely and informs you that there are leftovers in the mess tent.


AtD:
"I doubt they'll return," Allira responds. "They seemed intent on something and waging a war on the surface world isn't it. And, yes, right through here."

Allira leads Arista back into the main chamber and into a small grotto. "I better see to the rest of my people."

She turns and walks out.


Gonna call it a night.


@Drago: Yes.


You hear the distant howl of a wolf as you rest.


AtD:
Allira smiles and casts the other spell, restoring Ylrhea's strength. "I'm sure I don't have to tell you to be more careful in the future."


AtD:
"More than we could count," Allira says, taking the items and leading the way to the prayer chamber. "They struck swiftly and departed as the sun came up. If they didn't, I doubt we would still be here. Even though they weren't strong, their numbers were."

She holds out the diamond in her hand and begins to recite her prayer. "Aroden, god of man, seeker of justice and truth, I ask that you bring life to flesh. Heal Ylrhea's wounds and let her soul return among us."

A soft ray of light falls upon the gnome's face.


Con:
"Shaken up, but fine," Jerryl says. "No one knew much about him, so don't hold it against yourself. Perhaps being around her family will help her recover much more quickly."


AtD:
Within the caves, they find Allira tending to several wounded Anizari. She looks up at Sādhanā and Arista and gives them a grim smile. She finishes healing one Anizari and approaches. "As you can see, we've had our hands full. Ylrhea's body is safe, though. Did you get the required items?"


Con:
"Aliethia went to Valwick, Alethiro came for her the other day," Jerryl says. "Niccolo attacked her. He was found guilty and executed earlier today."

The halfling holds out a ring. "This was his ring. He used it to hide his true nature from everyone. It's yours, if you want it."

[ooc]It's a Ring of Undetectable Alignment.


Con:
"But that is entirely your decision to do so," Jerryl says. "There is more than one answer here."


Con:
Magnus' men nod to Cyna and Sienna. "We'll keep things in order here, if you need to take care of anything."

---

"The path of redemption isn't an easy one," Jerryl says. "You have to work at it. You can't just snap your fingers and instantly have things fall into place. As for Chalandra, you'll have to determine what you have to do. It probably isn't going to be easy, but your intentions are the most important. Is it for revenge or for a nobler cause?"

AtD:
Maera does not raise her head to look at you. "They came in great numbers. We fought them to the best of our ability, but they seemed to be cutting off our escape routes. It was as if they were trying to keep us from leaving the forest...Once the dawn came, they fled. My friend fell here...it is only now that I can properly mourn him."

"There is nothing I want for now," the nymph sighs. "I am safe and it appears you are as well. I need some time alone."


Assuming everyone is good with this plan...

You make your way through the ice and snow without much difficulty. The sun sets after a couple of hours.

Con:
"Well, have you killed anyone in cold blood lately?" Jerryl asks, walking up behind Drago.


Siphas is still small enough that 80 people effectively doubles their population. This was a very sudden change and it's not like they were sitting on tons of food. Siphas sadly lacks a Wal-Mart :P Lord Harthing just sees this from his point of view, where it's like you come along and go "here's some more people" then turn around and go do something else while he has to manage the newcomers.

This sums it up.

AtD:
Arista and Sādhanā find Maera at her pond, weeping over the unicorn.


Con:
"Aye, and I'd like to get my son, please," Magnus chimes in. "For what it's worth, Lord Harthing, we do have some combat training. If you could use some extra hands around here, we'd be willing to help."

Lord Harthing sighs and looks at Drago. "Go ahead to the temple. And you, Black Eagle, go get your son and we shall talk. I'll see if I can get some food together...it doesn't look like many of you have eaten well."

"If you'll stay here, my men will help keep things orderly around here," Magnus says to Cyna and Sienna.

Con:
"Excuse yourself," Harthing says. "We have done nothing but provide food and security to these people. They repay us with nothing. If that's how you really feel about it, you can take these children and these elderly and never darken the doorstep of Siphas ever again."


AtD:
Arista sees a dark figure slumped in the corner of the bedroom.


Con:
"I don't see a dark dwarf among you," Lord Harthing comments, addressing Drago. "These children claim their parents are dark dwarves."


Con:
"No, I'm telling you I have no way to accommodate more people," Lord Harthing says, his expression unchanging. "Especially ones that'll end up as shiftless and conniving as the last lot you left us. Unlike you, who are free to gallivant about without a care in the world, I have to provide for everyone here and room and board is not in abundance here. We are not a charity for you to use at your whims. Kindness only extends so far in this world."

AtD:
The inside of the cabin is as quiet inside as it was without. The lanterns inside are unlit.


AtD:
You arrive at Maera's cabin as the sun rises. It is silent here.


Frostine doesn't find anything else of use.


Five.

Arista's new theme song.

AtD:
Arista immediately determines the person has been dead for at least a couple of hours based on the blood around the wound. Severe bruising is found around the wound, as if someone or something had choked the man before killing him. The bruising is consistent with a medium humanoid's hand pattern. The wound is fairly deep indicating the whatever did this had long and fairly sharp claws. The dirt on the man's face looks more recent than the blood, so the body may have been moved from where the murder occurred.

Arista finds nothing of note on the man except for a small coin pouch with 3 silver pieces inside. She also finds postmortem bruising on the man's arms, suggesting the man was gripped by the arms after he was killed. Small, shallow lacerations along his forearms confirm her suspicions.

Too bad you don't have a fingerprint kit and a internet database :P


Con:
"Look around you," Lord Harthing says in a droll voice. "We have expanded beyond our walls to accommodate these children and elderly you brought to us. If that isn't enough, most of these children have resorted to stealing from our local markets, though we have done our best to provide plenty of food. They refuse to answer to anybody who isn't a duergar and, believe me, they are in short supply in Siphas."


I heard he was sick...

She scared the daylights out of me.

Eleanor sets up the boards and lashes them together with some rope. Soon, you have a functional sled.

AtD:
The cart is empty and the person next to it had his throat torn out, a look of sheer terror on his face.

-Posted with Wayfinder


AtD:
Sadhana catches sight of a handcart and a pair of legs sticking out of the bushes.
